|Class type:||Hot Hatha 1|
|Class description:||A non-vinyasa based asana practice in a heated room focused on connecting the body and mind. Some asanas are held for longer periods of time with the purpose of building endurance. Some pranayama, chanting and meditation may be included.
The heat adds to the physical effort required to do the postures and aids to condition the body. This class is suitable for students with physical endurance and some yoga experience. No full inversions are included in these classes. Some preparations for inversions and Level 2 postures may be introduced, with options for Level 1 students to ease the transition from Level 1 to Level 2 classes. Room temperature: 38-40 °C.|
|Class level:|| Level 1|
|Upon finishing his degree in Philosophical Studies in 2008, John took to travelling to experience the world. Eventually landing in Hong Kong, John's first yoga class was a hot class and soon after he found Ashtanga Vinyasa as the practice for him. The focus and discipline this system provided helped John truly commit to the yogic path.|
A few years later, it was a trip to Thailand to study with Paul Dallaghan and his team that helped John discover new depths to his practice. He found great benefits from the Kriyas, Pranayamas and Mantras he learnt there, developing a meditative aspect that helped bring clarity and calmness to his life. During his years in Hong Kong, John is also very grateful to Connie for guiding him with his asana practice.
"The beauty of your practice is in your breath" is the mantra that John bases his classes on. He believes that even in the most energetic classes, there should be a firm grounding quality and stillness of the mind. Keeping his teaching simple and humble, John hopes to guide his students with proper alignment and attention to their breath.
